Continuous Testing: The Key To Increasing Delivery Speed And Quality In Your DevOps Pipeline
Industry analysts, software innovators, and technical evangelists all warned us it was coming. Some of us believed them, others doubted, but there’s no denying that it’s here. The era of continuous delivery of software through DevOps is upon us. But what does that mean to the testing community?
Technological revolutions such as the Internet of Things, and new delivery practices bring real challenges for software development, testing, and operations teams. How do we accelerate releasing new application features to market rapidly, even continuously, without sacrificing quality? Quality Assurance practitioners, test automation engineers and developers must collaborate to achieve consistently high quality in their lean, DevOps delivery processes by testing continuously throughout the entire lifecycle – from development all the way though to production.
Watch as the Hewlett Packard Enterprise subject matter experts describe the challenges of continuous delivery, and demonstrate best practices to achieve uncompromising quality by continuous testing from story creation to continuous integration and delivery.
